EEMSG DLP VIOLATION -Social Security or Credit Card Numbers

This is an automatically generated Enterprise Email Security Gateway (EEMSG) content analysis notification:

Your message was blocked by EEMSG. You have attempted to send an unencrypted email that appears to contain Personally Identifiable Information (PII).

NOTE: The Privacy Act of 1974 requires Federal agencies, including DoD, to establish appropriate technical safeguards to ensure the security and confidentiality of records and to protect against any anticipated threats or hazards.  DoD Directive 5400.11, DoD Privacy Program, requires DoD Components to assess the impact of technology on the privacy of PII and adopt privacy-enhancing technology both to preserve and protect PII and to permit auditing of compliance with DoDD 5400.11 and 5400.11-R, Department of Defense Privacy Program.

Sending social security numbers and/or credit card numbers via unencrypted email is inconsistent with these DoD policies.  Either remove the social security numbers and/or credit card numbers contained in your email or enable encryption and then resend. Or, you can send the information via a file exchange site, provided the site is compliant with the DoDD 5400.11 regulations stated in the paragraph above.

Please call your local Service Desk if you need help sending encrypted emails or have other questions regarding this message.  At a minimum, please include the time and time zone the message was sent, your email address and the recipient email address(es).  Do not send any attachments or include the suspected PII to any service desk.
